a state, let's take texas, for example, where six million texans are uninsured, highest rate in the country. quarter of their residents don't have health insurance. if they went with the affordable care act and expanded medicaid up to 133%, it could cover two million more texans. for the first years it would be 100% of the federal government expense. going forward it would be at 90% of federal government expense. texas decides in their texas way that they do sometimes that they're not going to go with the program. those two million people won't be insured and yet they won't qualify for the subsidies in the affordable care act to health them be able to afford insurance on their own. we'll have a situation where the poorest people, the people in the most need will be totally left out in the cold. bobby jindel has said he's not going to go with the medicaid expansion. you can imagine that a lot of these republicans are going to make this a litmus issue so that any republican who has national ambitions will have their feet held to the fire to say they're not going to go forward w
